Protesters wearing shirts with letters that made up a sentence «Remove Trump» staged a protest in the Hart Senate Office Building, in Washington DC on Monday, demanding US President Donald Trump to be removed from office.
Police officers intervened shortly after the protest started, prompting the protesters to leave the building, warning that arrests could be made.
«In the Constitution, there is... Еще a little bit there about how the impeachment is supposed to roll out if there is impeachment. Well, we have an impeachment and it's not rolling out,» said Joanna Oltman Smith, one of the protesters.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not yet sent the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial, saying that they will be sent when the Senate trial procedure will be clear.
The US House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump 230-197 for abuse of power, in connection with his alleged quid pro quo with the Ukrainian President, and also voted 229-198 for obstruction of Congress for interfering with the investigation into his Ukraine call.
